SDCC 2015: DEADPOOL Trailer is Just as Good as You Hoped

2015-Comic-Con-ArticlesDeadpool took the stage to arguably the loudest reaction yet. Director Tim Miller was there, along with Ryan Reynolds, TJ Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Gina Carano, and everyone’s favorite Transporter, Ed Skrein.  The panel was introduced by a clip of Deadpool in a lounge chair, saying “From the studio that inexplicably sewed his fucking mouth shut.”  When everyone finally took the stage, it quickly snowballed into the most vulgar panel of the entire convention.  And it worked perfectly.

Yes, everyone was hilarious, and it was apparent that working on this films was a dream come true for any actor or filmmaker, but the real treat was the red band trailer. We learn that Wade is swiftly dying from cancer. His wife tells him she loves him, and they’ll get through it. “You’re right, the cancer is only in my liver, lungs, prostate, and brain. All things I can live without” he replies. A man offers to make him better, and soon he’s on a hospital bed. Strapped on the gurney being wheeled into the room, he asks, “Please don’t make the superset green. Or animated.” Skrein warns “you know the one thing that never survives this place is a sense of humor?”

“We’ll see, Posh Spice.”

He’s knocked out by Carano and it cuts to Deadpool relaxing on a bridge, listening to Salt n Peppa’s “Shoop” while sketching a child-like portrait of him killing bad guys. He jumps off and lands in the opened sunroof of a car and beats everyone up in it, causing the vehicle to overturn and roll through traffic. Bad guys swarm the car, which prompts him to ask, “you know why I wear a red suit? So bad guys can’t see me bleed.” He points to one of the soldiers. “See, that guy’s wearing brown pants. He’s got the bright idea.” We’re then treated to a series of brilliantly hyper violent moments, and our first look at Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead.


More than the carnage, the moment that received the best reaction was a simple moment with Reynolds and Miller at a table making fun of Reynold’s horribly scarred face. “You look like Freddy Krueger face-fucked a topographical map of Utah,” exclaimed Miller. Another good one: “Like an avocado had sex with an older avocado.” The last shot, Deadpool shoots more people from the beginning, sniffs the smoking gun barrel, blows the smoke out the mouth and says, “I’m touching myself tonight.”


During the panel, Reynolds once again promised that the character would not have his mouth sewn shut. This is a big deal for him, mentioning that this he had never done a proper superhero film before. “….well, not proper, but a superhero film.” There were jokes about the director crying at violence, to which Reynolds commented, “this guy should direct the ‘Hulk.’ He’d be sobbing every moment.” I’m still in shock that this movie got made, and believe me, so are the filmmakers. It looks like a blast, and I hope it kills at the box office.

“Deadpool” opens February 12, 2016. Just in time for my birthday.


I never stand in front of the elevator doors when they open. All because of the movie The Departed.
